Mission and Needs Statement

The mission and needs for the Lacona Public Library - the long range plan.

 

MISSION STATEMENT:

To serve the people in our community by providing a place that encourages reading and access to information for learning and enjoyment.

 

NEEDS STATEMENT:

On Saturday, April 23, 2006 a group representing the people of Lacona and surrounding rural community met to discuss the roles that would be best for the Lacona Public Library to adopt in its long range plan.  The group identified a list of specific community needs the library might meet (see appendix V).  Many of these needs had to do with the library as a place that supports learning activities, whether the learners are on their own or seeking assistance for a formal class.  A third group of needs had to do with the library as a community resource for area residents.  Finally, the group identified a need for the library to promote its collections and services more effectively.
